I’d agree with the previous poster, that dangerous driving is a major challenge. Normally courteous people seem to transform into pushy, dangerous, inconsiderate and downright aggressive individuals behind the wheel. The narrow, winding roads with a lack of shoulders complicates the issue.

After recent tragic drug related incidents in Cork it highlights the danger of illegal drugs, these aren't the first incidents either! I think the easy availability, cheap price of drugs and addictive nature contributes hugely to crime, mostly theft. I have witnessed drug dealing and fights due to drugs and I know the difference between alcohol and drug fights, I have also been the victim of robbery, to pay for the criminals habit. To finish I think more needs to be done on education as to the dangers and fatal consequences of drug use, more police and stiffer sentences for the masters of this evil trade!

By far the biggest crime problem in Cork is traffic related, dangerous driving, cycle lanes blocked by dangerous parking and this isn't captured in this questionnaire. Also the questions on car theft would be better replaced with ones on bike theft as verty few people in the city (as opposed to suburbars and surrounding countryside when ownership levels are exceptionally high) own a car.
